A computer model for simulation of smoke movement
through air conditioning systems is described. A brief
overview of air conditioning systems is presented. The
methods of calculation of mass flow, smoke transport,
fan flow and duct and fitting resistances are presented
along with a general description of the program logic.
Eventually a computer software will be available, but it
is still in the developmental stage as this report goes
to press. (Parts of this have been incorporated into
CFAST; contact Dr. W. W. Jones for more information.)
